What Is Aggregate Information?
Aggregate information, which does not contain any personally identifying information, is collected on an ongoing basis, and relates to the number of visitors to the website, which pages they access, what information they download, the type of browser and operating system used, the name of the internet service provider, etc. When you visit the website, we may automatically collect this information from you, and aggregate it with similar information collected from other visitors.

Do We Use ‘Cookies?’
Like many companies, Bunge may use “cookie” technology to collect aggregate information. Cookies are tiny elements of data that a site can send to a browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive so we can recognize you when you return.
